The Yarn is Cascade 220, the most popular yarn on Ravelry. It is 100% wool, very soft and felts beautifully.
With any competition there are prizes, last year some of the yarn suppliers donated prizes and I will attempt to have them donate again.
1st prize is $30 Gift Certificate to Soper Creek Yarn
2nd and 3rd prizes both receive $15 Gift Certificates.
We have wound up 12 kits (Kits are $5 each). Entries are due back to the shop on March 21st, voting will take place the week following that and the winners announced on April 1st.
This Friday is Knitt'n Night, 6 pm - 8:30 pm. We are working on shawls, we could do a little 'fix your mistakes lesson' if you bring in a swatch of stockinette stitch about 6 x 10 inches, the bigger the swatch the more we can do with it...leave it on the needles. (Worsted weight, smooth yarn, 5mm needles cast on 30 stitches knit 1 row purl 1row for 6 inches)
Last time we did a quick blocking session on a Shawl knit by and eager knitter who is attempting to knit a shawl every 2 weeks!
This past Saturday we had many knitters come in with completed projects and with permission I am posting them on the Facebook page. Go have a look!
